Hey Guys!

I'm not officially back yet; I'm sort of in a transitional phase. I'm trying to clean up some of the links here. If there's something you want that doesn't have a working link right now, let me know and I'll try to fix it ASAP.

Soupy Sales Sez Do the Mouse and Other Teen Hits

Soupy Sales was a popular kid's show in the 1950s and 60s. He also had a minor hit with the song "The Mouse," which also had an accompanying dance. On this album, he not only performs that hit and the follow-up "Mouse Trap," he also sings a number of popular songs at the time, as well as some fun novelty hits and original songs. Enjoy!

Here's the track list:
  1. The Mouse
  2. Name Game
  3. Sad Sack
  4. Speedy Gonzales
  5. Hey Pearl
  6. The Nitty Gritty
  7. Mouse Trap
  8. Your Brains'll Fall Out
  9. King Kong
  10. Mighty Clem
  11. Pachalafaka
  12. Mr. Cab Driver
UPDATE: I'm afraid I was forced to remove the link for this album, but you can find these songs (and more) on the album featured below!

Music from Mary Poppins and Other Film Favorites

Woo-hoo! I actually got another album in for this week! The first side of the record features songs from "Mary Poppins," but for some reason "Let's Go Fly a Kite" is simply referred to as the "Overture" and "Stay Awake" is called the "Finale." Also how they could have done a Mary Poppins album and left out "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is beyond me! The flip side features such film favorites as "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "I've Been Working on the Railroad". (Huh?) Anyway, I hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Overture (Let's Go Fly a Kite)
  2. Spoon Full of Sugar
  3. Feed the Birds
  4. Chimchimcheree
  5. Finale (Stay Awake)
  6. Take Me Out to the Ballgame
  7. I've Been Working on the Railroad
  8. Beautiful Dreamer
  9. Billy Boy
  10. Oh Dear What Can the Matter Be

The New Zoo Revue

Hey, I'm back again after too long an absence, with this fun album from the classic children's show. I think it was actually two short records put together because the opening and closing theme appear on both sides of the record. I changed it so the open starts the whole record and the closing theme finishes it. These sound like they might have been taken from actual episodes. Anyway, I hope to have at least one more album on here this week, so let's cross our fingers and hope for the best!

Here's the track list:
  1. New Zoo Revue (Open)
  2. School Daze
  3. It's Lonely When You Don't Like School
  4. We Need School
  5. Stay in School
  6. In the Arts
  7. Colors
  8. The Only Art in the World
  9. Cheer Up
  10. New Zoo Revue (Close)

Kiddie Pops

This album features an eclectic mix of songs for kids (i.e. probably stuff from numerous sources) like "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", "Frere Jacques", and "Sixteen Tons" (huh?). It also includes a somewhat freaky cover.

This record has the dubious distinction of being in my posting queue the longest. I put the initial post for this album in all the way on May 23, 2008! The problem is that I did some cleaning and misplaced the cover, and I didn't want to post (or upload) the album without it. I did some rearranging and found it, so here it is. Was it worth the wait? Probably not, but it does mean I've got something available here on the board for two weeks in a row, so it should get credit for that!

Here's the track list:
  1. Sweetie Bear
  2. Billy Boy
  3. Tammy
  4. Sixteen Tons
  5. The Little Tin Soldier
  6. Little Goldie Goldfish
  7. Oh Dear What Can the Matter Be
  8. Take Me Out to the Ballgame
  9. A Hunting We Will Go
  10. My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean
  11. I've Been Working on the Railroad
  12. Beautiful Dreamer
  13. Cindy Oh Cindy
  14. Frere Jacques

Twist to the Oldies with Fats and the Chessmen

Here's an album that tied into the dance craze at the time, the twist. It features a number of old songs fitted into a twist tempo. As with any album like this, it works better for some of these than with others. I prefer the ones that include singing by a cut-rate Chubby Checker sound-alike. Hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Twistin' School Days
  2. Bill Bailey, Please Come Home
  3. Boogie Woogie Twist
  4. The Camptown Twisters
  5. Give My Regards to Broadway
  6. Sweet Rosie O' Grady
  7. Twistin' Through the Park
  8. Ja-Da
  9. And the Band Played On
  10. Sweet Adeline Twist
  11. Man on the Flying Trapeze
  12. Yankee Doodle Twist
  13. When the Saints Come Twistin' In

Goldilocks - Bing Crosby

Hey, I'm back! Here's an album that looks to have been based on a TV special about Goldilocks and the Three Bears, featuring the voices of Bing Crosby, his wife Kathryn, son Nathaniel, and Mary Frances Crosby as Goldilocks. Those bears better be careful. She shot J.R., so there's no telling what she'd do to bears! Also featured is Paul Winchell doing a variation of his Dick Dastardly voice. Enjoy!
